I've been looking every day (almost) since March and have CS updates (daily) and I haven't seen any HEO positions for DWP.I saw a massive campaign for the EO roles (mainly Temp) but not HEO, they usually recruit EO to see how many HEOs needed, I could be wrong but I'm 100% I've not see any HEO?Can I ask was you on the EO 2017 campaign, i recognise your username? I was on the EO 2017 campaign on reserve

Hi

The HO jobs were internal maybe that’s why you did not see them. Plus this was pre-covid and were only advertising like 17jobs but now things have changed and the reserve list will be used for giving offers due to covid.
Yh I think so do you mean the work coach campaign - I was on the reserve list for 12 months I never got the job in the end but was offered the PIP job instead which I took and did that for about 9months. I then moved back to hmrc to be team leader and been doing that for just over 1 year now.
How did you get on, did you get the work coach job ?

Yes I remember you. I remember speaking to you back then.

Ok thanks for that, I dont have access to Internal.

I stayed for 2years as a WC and left due to being stuck in a rut and to be honest was over experienced for the role (my previous role non CS was management)

I've applied again as I miss the CS, got merit list for a SEO role so I'm waiting for that and another SEO role

Good to hear from you and I'm glad it worked out for you in the end

Aww that’s amazing Yh I have been with CS just over 3 yrs now - it seems once you’re in you don’t want to leave lol. I’m trying to gradually move up the ranks started as AO in hmrc then EO in dwp and then came back to hmrc as EO . So now on reserve for HO at dwp but would prefer to stay in hmrc but there seems to be hardly any ho jobs here so have to just go for what is out there. I have applied for 2 so roles in hmrc but still waiting to hear back.
Yh I was a bit gutted being on a reserve list after the last experience but I’m hoping this time I will get the job
Well you sound like me lol just moving up and making best out of opportunities good luck for the future x

Wow, well done you too! That's excellent news, I really hope you get the job.

Well done for staying and persevering (which is one of the things I need to work on) you have done great to work up as you know it's not easy and some not all but some managers can make it harder for you to move.

Yes its disheartening but it worked out well so far for you, I needed to come out to go back in to reflect and reset my grade going from EO to SEO wasnt going to work. Having said that I've applied for a few HEO roles with the MOJ so I'm hoping to get a interview on one of those too.
Keep us all posted and good luck xx
